The Myths of Al Qaeda

By Kirwan
In George Orwell's classic "1984," his world was held together by continuous and unending war: In the book his concept was defined by video clips of HATE, broadcast several times a day during which the population (in the novel) was required to watch and rave against the ENEMY. Those who rule this nation now, seek to use Al Qaeda as the 2005 version of the terror created in '1984' by proclaiming the now infamous phrase "Links to Al Qaeda!"
Since the war began in Afghanistan, the administration has been using this completely damning and completely empty phrase at every opportunity. "Damning " because the phrase carries all the unspoken horror, and all the unspecified terror that our Bandits want the world to feel - every time there is any activity that the USA disapproves of. "Empty" because nothing, despite Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib, has ever been publicly found, no trials have been held that we know of, and no one has been convicted of being part of Al Qaeda - except the dead. So - What exactly is Al Qaeda?
Al Qaeda was created by the CIA, in their offices in Washington D.C., According to Richard Clark in his most recent book. It was created for Saudi Arabia to bankroll Osama bin Laden, through the House of Saud, "in the Afghan war against the Soviet Union during the 1980's and Riyadh and Washington together contributed an estimated $3.5 billion to the mujahideen."
"In late 2003, U.S. News & World Report conducted an exhaustive study titled. 'The Saudi Connection.' Its findings included the following."
"The evidence was indisputable: Saudi Arabia, America's longtime ally and the world's largest oil producer, had somehow become, as a senior Treasury Department official put it, 'the epicenter' of terrorist financing'
Starting in the late 1980's - after the dual shocks of the Iranian revolution and the Soviet war in Afghanistan - Saudi Arabia's quasi-official charities became the primary source of the funds for the fast-growing jihad movement. In some twenty countries the money was used to run para-military training camps, purchase weapons, and recruit new members'
Saudi largess encouraged U.S. officials to look the other way, some veteran intelligence officers say. Billions of dollars in contracts, grants, and salaries have gone to a broad range of former U.S. officials who had dealt with the Saudis: ambassadors, CIA station chiefs, even cabinet secretaries'
Electronic intercepts implicated members of the royal family in backing not only al Qaeda but also other terrorist groups."
"In October 2003, Vanity Fair magazine disclosed information that had not previously been made public, in an in-depth report entitled 'Saving the Saudis.' The story that emerged about the relationship between the Bush family, the House of Saud, and the bin Laden family" (outlined) relationships that went back at least to the time of the Saudi Arabian Money-laundering Affair which began in 1974, and to George H.W. Bush's terms as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations (1971-1973) and then as head of the CIA (1976-1977).
"Vanity Fair concluded: The Bush family and the House of Saud, the two most powerful dynasties in the world, have had closed personal business, and political ties for more than 20 years'.
In the private sector, the Saudi's supported Harken Energy, a struggling oil company in which George W. Bush was an investor. Most recently former president George H.W. Bush and his longtime ally, former Secretary of State James A. Baker III, have appeared before Saudis at fundraisers for the Carlyle Group, arguably the biggest private equity firm in the world. Today former president Bush continues to serve as senior advisor to the firm, whose investors allegedly include a Saudi accused of ties to terrorist support groups'
Just days after 9/11, wealthy Saudi Arabians, including members of the bin Laden family, were whisked out of the U.S. on private jets. No one will admit to clearing the flights, and the passengers weren't questioned. Did the Bush family's long relationship with the Saudis help make it happen?"
With the above as background, consider that Bush junior has sworn to go after all those who shelter terrorists, as well as all those who have been responsible for funding terrorist activities. Why hasn't 'Poppy' been arrested? Moreover - why has the public not picked up on the fact that right up until September 11, 2001, Al Qaeda was ours; we created it, we trained the terrorists and we used them! Why can we not find them now, and why has bin Laden not been captured or killed? In this light "Links to Al Qaeda!" takes on an entirely new meaning. This is not just idle conjecture - there is a real problem here. Bush and his henchmen are in this up to their eyes, and have been, since long before this current episode became public.
American forces are, at this moment, fighting people and organizations that we created, the groups we armed, and whom we continue to protect, from implications in the actions that occurred on 911. So who at the top is "friend" and who is "foe"? When that 'secrecy-protected phrase' "Links to Al Qaeda!" is uttered: Why is there never any proof of anything, and why has it continued now for three years without any challenge to the legitimacy of these empty claims? It appears that the American public has been had - and will continue to be taken down the primrose path (lined with the bodies of the hundreds of thousands that we've killed) - all because we'd really prefer not to look too closely at what our tax dollars are paying for.
This administration needs to answer these questions on the record, the world wants to hear their response, because the facts simply don't add up - they never have.
It's one thing to keep the coffins of the dead a secret from the media, but it is another matter all together, to hide this Bush complicity, with the very people who he says - started this war. Bush begged the people of Iraq to rise up and fight us, when he said: "Bring it on!" That has been done, and the stats to date continue to soar with every day that passes, despite the unofficial news blackouts on the war in Iraq. Bush vowed to bring "all those responsible to justice" - what happened to that empty promise when it came down to his own family and that closed but very special circle of his friends, who all came together to create Al Qaeda and to feed all that hate that keeps the resistance going strong?
The global economic world is about to be consumed by fire, and this charade will melt in the flames of the coming disaster: but these "Myths" are what underlie it all!
Given the crash above, these dirty-little-secrets will all be coming out anyway - there just might not be time to prosecute the dynasties and all their friends unless the public gets involved.
Whatever happens, the government needs to open the books on Al Qaeda now, and prosecute all those who had a hand in this charade - especially the entire Bush family. The public also needs to begin to demand answers about that obscene little phrase: "Links to Al Qaeda!" We deserve to have those "links" spelled out in specific detail, or have the mention of them dropped from any and all future reports emanating from this mythical bogeyman that has proved to be such a boon to thieves who inhabit Washington D.C. today.
